My Simple Valentine Story

dancing clumsily - shy blue cowboy eyes smiling. . . . he swept me away marriage fast foreknown - no proposal from his lips. . . . just lots of kisses my man of few words tells me, “I’ll always love you”. . . . few words are true words

Say it now!!!

Give me my life back
Satan release your grip—now!

Continue to live by it
Let it manifest!

You Will Feel

be mindful
human rights are human ways
that lead down

be careful
the words above always remain
wear no crown

trap the sin
destroy the lie of conceit
look within

don't consume all that you see
you will feel
wrong like fire

Passing Regret

Dead winds blow through the 
Old oak parlor door at night
Silently she screams 

No one to hear her 
Stifled, but desperate cry 
She waits, hopes, and dreams

A sin, she's told to 
Want for anything more than
Rough stone, wood and brass 

Resolved, she watches 
The sun die, to rise again
Through the old stained glass

Trapped in unselfish 
And eternal devotion 
Both, the cage and key 

Lingering in what 
Well might or might not have been 
Dreams are hard to see

Vows uttered to God
With well meaning intention
The velvet-lined snare 

She, with rosary 
Held tight in her trembling hands
Buries all in prayer

Know-

Know…

Pondering about
Heavenly Father’s wishes
Edifies a man.

God’s not forgetful, he knows

Holy Grimace

In such agreement
With all that is being said
Standing up in awe

Rocking side to side
With folded arms, shriveled nose
Squinted eyes, spiked shouts

Downward lips poked out
With wrinkled brow and clinched fists
Arms start rotating

Rolling, beating air
Shifting foot to foot ready
To launch in the deep

The speaker speaks on
Overexaggerated
With vi'lent fervor

Still with that grimace
Clapping hands, shaking the head
Nodding with more shouts

Now out the fifth row
A trot turns into a sprint
Til breathless with tears

Arms raised, surrender
Jumping sporadically
In freedom of soul

For Guidance

      How go I from here?
crossroads at the unmarked track 
    compass in the sky?

Thieves and Paradise

Already dying
One cursed Christ.  Ready to die
One was blessed with life.

After Many Years

after many years
of reading the holy book,
i’m still a sinner

Walking the Walk

Feeding the hungry
Clothing those who are naked
Walk justly--humbly

Bitter Waters

A tainted fountain
A useless, unkept landmark
Though waters made sweet


Details | Senryu | |

Rich and Righteous

Abraham, father
Of many sons, God-made rich
With faith, fields and funds

Solomon's wisdom
God's extravagance given
For childlike request

Job, the richest man
Lost it all, prayed for his friends
God doubled his wealth


No contradiction of terms

Fire Boys

Three did not bow down
To the king's idol... music...
Doomed to the furnace.

Seven times hotter,
The flames leaped out opened doors
Consuming king's men

And burning the ropes
Of the three thrown in the fire
Freeing them to dance

Round the Son of God;
They came out alive, unsinged
With no smell of smoke.


Dedicated to Caleb for his make-believe hero, Fire Boy.

See Greater Things

Ere Phillip woke you,
Beneath the Sycamine tree,
I saw your pure heart.
